postive thinking

Published April 28, 2013 by LUMS MARTIN

Gratitude is an appreciation of your life right now, versus where you want it to be.”

*Noted in this book: People who write down the things they are grateful for every day have stronger immune systems, more happiness, and less reaction to negative events.

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”

“The Old Ones have always said that no matter who despises or ignores you, no matter who keeps you from entering their circles, it is right to pray for them because they are like us, too.”

“Much thought has at its root a dissatisfaction with what is. Wanting is the urge for the next moment to contain what this moment does not. When there is wanting in the mind, that moment feels incomplete. Wanting is seeing elsewhere. Completeness is being right here.”

“Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

“Every wall is a door.”

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

“Everything necessary to the full and complete expression of the most boundless experience of joy is mine now.”

“People who laugh together generally don’t kill each other.”

“It is hard to smash a computer when you’re laughing.”

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”

“In any dark time, there is a tendency to veer toward fainting over how much is wrong or unmended in the world. Do not focus on that. Do not make yourself ill with overwhelm. There is a tendency to fall into being weakened by perseverating on what is outside your reach, by what cannot yet be. Do not focus there. That is spending the wind without raising the sails.”

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience and Infinite love is the only truth; everything else is an illusion.”

“Right now at this very moment we have a mind, which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.”
“Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force.”

“Our attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.”

“You cannot tailor make the situations in life, but you can tailor make the attitudes to fit those situations before they arise.”

“You can’t get much done in life if you only work on the days when you feel good.”

“You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.”

“Your aspirations are your possibilities.”

“Your attitude is an expression of your values, beliefs and expectations.”

“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”

“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.”

“Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.”

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.”

“Whoever you are, there is some younger person who thinks you are perfect. There is some work that will never be done if you don’t do it. There is someone who would miss you if you were gone. There is a place that you alone can fill.”

“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”

“Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission.”

“The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results.”

“The real voyage of discovery consists of not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”

“The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.”

“True compassion does not come from wanting to help out those less fortunate than ourselves, but from realizing our kinship with all beings.”

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

“This time like all times is a very good one if we know what to do with it.”

“Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.”

“Science may have found a cure for most evils, but is has found no remedy for the worst of them all: the apathy of human beings.”

“Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, “This is the real me,” and when you have found that attitude, follow it.”

“Sometimes we are limited more by attitude than by opportunities.”

“Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.”

“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”

“The last of the human freedoms is to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances.”

“Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.”

“You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.”

“To love someone is to give them the freedom to be themselves.”

“When people are laughing, they’re generally not killing each other.”

“No human would ever do anything to harm another if Connected to Source because when you’re Connected, you’re empowered; you don’t feel insecure. And when you don’t feel insecure, you don’t need to do something to somebody else that you’re afraid of, because you’re not afraid. You understand that Well-Being is yours.”

“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there– buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.”

  • The appropriate medical insurance exam is one that will not take into consideration your previous medical issues. Once you have got that fixed, you can figure out how much you can invest in a per month or an yearly foundation. Fortunately, because there are private health and dental insurance companies offering a wide range of insurance products, you will be able to find and buy the right insurance that meets your needs so you and your family can rest easy knowing that you are financially covered in the event of a sudden dental and health emergency.
